454 CI, ALUMINUM HEADS, 700 R4, 3:73 POSI, 17" TORQUE THRUST, FRESH INT & PAINT!
Big, bad, and blue, this brutal 1971 Chevelle is the muscle car you've always dreamed of owning. Tons of power thanks to a built big block, a classic hi-performance look, and finish quality that'll make you the star at the local cruise night. This is muscle car done right.
It's a good thing they ditched the original Lime Green paint and gave this Chevelle a coat of bright Mulsanne Blue instead. Superbly finished, the vivid blue paint always looks right on the A-body and you can see from our photos how it highlights the dramatic body lines that are obscured with some of the more ordinary colors. Look at the gentle crease that defines the fender lines, the subtle flare of the rear quarters, and the peak that runs from the roof down to the rear bumper, all of which are often overlooked on lesser cars. Those details stand out because someone spent the time to keep them visible, and that's not cheap. They also laid down some proper white SS stripes, which are buried under the clear for a super slick look and an impossible shine. You can also forget about wax build-up on the edges, which makes lesser cars look unfinished. Bright chrome bumpers, polished stainless details, and proper SS badges throughout ensure this car won't get overlooked.
The medium blue interior was replaced during the restoration and expertly done to make this car stand out in a crowd. Bench seats mean there's plenty of stretch-out room for everyone, and you'll find it's easy to get comfortable behind the wheel. Since it's a color change (the cowl tag is difficult to read, but I'm guessing nobody ordered a blue interior with their Lime Green Chevelle), everything that's blue is brand new, from the door panels to the seat covers, headliner to carpets. The dash is full of crisp, bright gauges with a factory-style SS steering wheel that Camaro fans will also recognize. This one is built for combat, so there's no weight-adding power equipment save for power steering and brakes, which are pretty much mandatory when there's this much horsepower on board. The trunk is also properly finished with a reproduction mat atop spatter-finish paint, and it includes a restored jack assembly, which is always nice.
Beautiful cosmetics aside, this car is really about the powerplant, and it's a brute. 454 cubic inches of Chevy crate motor topped by aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, a big Holley 4-barrel carb, and long-tube headers to make it cackle. It's very clearly hardware-focused under the hood, with a big open-element air cleaner and chrome valve covers to set it off, but they didn't try anything custom and instead let the engine do all the talking. It starts easily and rumbles like it's making a threat at idle, and you can be sure that there's torque everywhere on the tach. A giant aluminum radiator keeps it cool without effort, and thanks to the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, it's a very civilized cruiser at speed, even with a 3.73 Posi out back. The undercarriage isn't detailed for show but the hardware is what you'd expect, including the Flowmaster mufflers with correct oval tips. Chrome Torque Thrust wheels keep the muscle car look while adding staggered 245/45/17 front and 255/45/18 rear performance radials.
Brutally fast, exceptionally pretty, and totally ready to rumble, this Chevelle is the car you've admired but never thought you could afford. Don't wait, call today!
